Rose Shoe

Project Description

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I was asked by our PME instructor, Maria Kovacs, to make a shoe using flowers and leaves. I basically followed instructions from the Craftsy on-line class - Nicholas Lodge - on the rose (which worked out fantastic!) Rose petal cutters 90mm, veiner, rose leaf cutter, rose leaf veiner, pasta machine, gum paste, wires. I did free hand cut the sole of the shoe (leaf) and used a plastic former to get the shape of a shoe and let it dry for a couple of days. To make the stem I put a wire through the stem in order to make it strong to support the weight at the top. What are you most proud of? I am so proud of the roses. I was showing someone a picture of it and they asked me if I would make one for their daughter's birthday....so I've got an order already! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would tell them to watch the video first, maybe a couple of times and do the step by step....it is better to start making the buds first and not jump into the rose right away. but Nicholas's instructions are great! Thanks, Nicholas and also a special thank you to Maria Kovacs for introducing me to Nicholas!
